will be a steam exclusive game using VAC
The pc sku will have "/record" and the theatre mode
There will be a Spectator mode in codblackops on the pc
Matchmaking on the pc is just letting the game pick a server in codblackops
No juggernaut, one man army or stopping power perks
No leveling up to get guns or attachments or perks. You buy with cod points what you want when you want it
There is an improved server browser
Dog killstreak is back
There will be RCON tool and mod/map tools. Mod tools after release
DRM is Steamworks, Anti-cheat is VAC
Ranking is server side apparently, not stored client-side
At the time, nothing related to a beta was allowed to be discussed.
In the new create-a-class, you can customize your weapon/perk loadout as well as your character (facepaint, camo, etc..) and etch your clan tag into your weapon and add custom decals to your clips/reticle
Helicopter killstreaks aren't AI controlled anymore, you fly & fire them yourself
Confirmed gametypes so far:
Capture the Flag
Search & Destroy

FAQ from pcdev on 9-4-10 wrote:Full feature support: Confirmed
Ranked Servers: earn XP and currency. Wager Servers: gamble your currency. Customizable Unranked Servers. Combat Training against practice dummies. Theater. Create-a-Class "2.0." Contracts. Emblem editor. Everything the consoles get. Implemented in a way that makes sense for PC (*cough* no lobbies *cough*).
PC Features: Confirmed
Dedicated Servers. New Server Browser. Dev console. /record. Customizable game modes, perks, killstreaks, classes, and higher player counts on unranked servers. Map rotation. RCon. Kick & Ban. MOTD. In-game custom Server Banners. And more.
Mod Tools: Confirmed
We will release mod tools sometime post-launch. We need to finish the game first. Then we will make sure any urgent issues are handled. Then we will begin work on tools. The extent of the mod tools package will not be known until this time.
Global Persistent Stats, Profiles: Confirmed
Your profile data is stored on servers for you and is accessible from anywhere on the internet. Stats, XP, COD Points, configs, etc.
Yes, leaderboards - globally persistent leaderboards (i.e. NOT per-server based).
Steam Exclusive: Confirmed
Millions of Call of Duty fans are already on Steam. Their Friends are on Steam. Steam will provide the ease of auto-updating instead of manual patching. Auto-updating will also help keep the community playing together on the latest version. The Steam cloud will make your profile and configs available to you on any computer.
We are serious about protecting the integrity of this game from hackers and cheaters who would otherwise ruin the fun for the honest players. Used in conjunction with our own anti-exploit measures, Theater reviews, trusted servers, and supplemented by server admins with kick and ban powers we believe that Valve Anti-Cheat will be an effective solution for Call of Duty: Black Ops PC. We are committed to working closely and diligently with Valve to deal with new threats as they appear.
No â€œPublic Server Filesâ€: Confirmed
Many of these game features are predicated on having a trusted host or server. Otherwise these features would be wide-open to easy exploits and rampant cheating. Also, anti-cheat solutions can be significantly more effective on games that rely on trusted servers. We chose against â€œpublic server filesâ€ in favor of providing full feature support and protecting the integrity of this title. This doesn't mean you won't have customization or admin capabilities with your servers - because you will. This simply means we've partnered with an exclusive server provider.
GameServers.com Exclusive: Confirmed
We have partnered with GameServers.com as the exclusive provider of dedicated servers for Call of Duty: Black Ops. Every dedicated server for this title will be running on top quality hardware and infrastructure with excellent bandwidth. There will be a ton of official servers at launch for everyone to play on for free. If you want to run your own server you will be able to rent one at a great price (which will never go higher than $0.99/slot). They are actively adding new server locations and staffing up to meet global demand. If you donâ€™t see your location you can suggest it here: http://www.gameservers.com/blackops/
Max Players: Not Confirmed
We have not yet finalized the maximum number of players in ranked or unranked servers. More playtesting is required to determine how high these numbers can go. This happens as late as possible in the project otherwise the game is likely to change in ways that could invalidate the results.
Minimum System Requirements: Not Confirmed
The game is still in development, and the PC team is hard at work making further optimizations. We will announce the min specs in the near future.
Will update when more info is available.

Lightweight+Warlord+Marathon sounds like a pretty nasty combo.
